* Genesis 28:3 – “May God almighty bless you!”

4.   We raise up the ministry of the Gospel – especially: … November’s “Mission of the Month” – supporting the Christmas Stores of Metro Lutheran Ministry (cash donations now total $1050); … our congregational ministries – our School, Paul’s Buffet, the 7th Street Feast, Meals That Matter, our KKLO Broadcast & Facebook Live simulcast, the Community Garden, Kid’s Connection, and more – that the Lord would use them (and us) to bring people to know His saving grace.

* Romans 1:16 – “The gospel … is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”
